Agree it`s a bad look and things that AFL players do trickle down to juniors.You guys need to get your yellow and black goggles off. I love the tigers as much as you do, but I umpire in the local leagues and it’s amazing how whatever happens on TV works it’s way into junior footy. Imagine if it was your son or daughter on the receiving end. And they don’t really feel comfortable in complaining because there’s a lot of peergroup pressure and, you know, it’s just ‘standard footy club fare‘. Just like racism used to be. What I’ve seen posted on this board a couple of times now is our players engaging in indecent assault, plain and simple. It’s a horrible, horrible look.
They need to cut it out and they definitely will now as it`s blown up in the media.
But to say it`s indecent assault is wrong, just like Hugh Riminton you`re trivialising real sexual assault / indecent assault.
They`re clearly good mates mucking around around with each other, like I said it`s not a good look and needs to stop but this is how a hell of a lot of men act around footy clubs.
